Protein remains stable at unusually high temperatures when solvated in aqueous mixtures of amino acid based ionic liquids.

Abstract

Using molecular dynamics simulations, we investigated the thermal stability and real-time denaturation of a model mini-protein in four solvents: (1) water, (2) 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium alaninate [EMIM][ALA] (5 mol% in water), (3) methioninate [EMIM][MET] (5 mol% in water), and (4) tryptophanate [EMIM][TRP] (5 mol% in water). Upon analyzing the radius of… (More)
